    Driver Image and the Outcome Effects on Trucking Issues

    in Current Events

    Our special guest is Brian Carlson of the Drive for Freedom (DFF) Organization, a non-profit advocacy organization under section 501(c)(3.


    Brian and the DFF take driver image seriously, believing that one must take responsibility and lead by example if professional drivers are going to be able to accomplish positive change for their industry.


    As DFF states on their website, “Our aim is to highlight the importance of Professional Drivers, taking full responsibility for the direction of our industry" and as part of an industry drive, DFF has created the “Drive It Right or Park It” Campaign.


    Join the discussion and share your thoughts as we discuss how driver image affects perception and the outcome of many of the troubling issues which drivers face today such as: wages, safety, classification, truck parking, respect and regulations.

    Truck Parking Shortage Receives National Attention

    in Current Events

    Truck drivers have been saying for years that, "We need more truck parking" but it seems that it took an article in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) to get the much needed attention of the general public.


    Join us with our special guest Dave Della Maggiore, a 20 year veteran driver as he shares his interview by WSJ journalist Betsy Morris from the report entitled: Too Many Trucks,Too Little Parking. Dave will also share his thoughts about the trip with WSJ photographers and his encounter with a tired trucker at a truck stop in Clines Corners, New Mexico.


    Dave and fiancée, Robin, run their active Facebook group, Give Truckers Room, educating drivers of passenger vehicles how to drive safely around semi trucks.


    Also joining us will be Nicholas Carretta, President and CEO of UltraShipTMS which specializes in transportation and technology solutions. UltraShipTMS quickly responded to the WSJ article and addressed the serious parking shortage in their own article, “Use YMS to Combat Truck Parking Crisis" which stated:


    "Keeping drivers off of public streets, freeway ramps and vulnerable, remote parking places like abandoned lots is a laudable goal.  It is also one that logistics as an industry is going to be forced to address."


    Mr. Carretta will discuss the UltraYMS tool, allowing the logistics sector to take an active and responsible part in the truck parking shortage solution.

    The Power of Driver Credentials

    in Current Events

    Our special guest, Kirk Kostoff draws from twenty years of combined skills in the B2B sales marketing and strategic business development arena, drawing from his experiences in the Fortune 500 market.


    In 2011 Mr. Kostoff entered the logistics side of business through his introduction and interaction with CR England and what he refers to as their "self proclaimed" legitimate franchise. His recent actions with the ongoing CR England class action litigation associated with driver's rights, legitimate wages and living conditions has positioned him as an upcoming "voice of reason" and concern for the small business owner, just recently founding The Drivers Association of America.


    Through extensive OTR experience and close contact with established strategic alliances, our guest will be discussing "The Power of Driver Credentials, The Driver Shortage Myth and Remedies through Education and Implementation."


    We invite everyone to consider these topics and call in with their perspectives as we will also discuss the CR England case as it is public knowledge and to reiterate for all the industry newcomers about the motor carrier leasing scams to once again explain how it all works against the professional truck driver.
